MAKE MEALTIME FUN: Ulula's organic pasta for babies and children comes in three great animal themes Read more >>
We believe that healthy food for babies, toddlers and small children comes from the purity and natural state of organic and biodynamic/Demeter agriculture.
If your baby shows an allergic reaction to complementary food please immediately consult your paediatrician, GP or Health Visitor and get further advice.
The allergy aware products supplied by Ulula are either gluten free or without cow’s milk protein. If there is neither gluten nor cow’s milk protein in the products they will appear in both categories.
Coeliac disease affects the small intestine and is due to a sensitivity to gluten, which is a protein found in wheat. Similar proteins are found in rye, barley and, to a much smaller extent, oats. Symptoms may occur at any age and may include weight loss, vomiting and diarrhoea.
A baby predisposed to coeliac disease could, after the introduction of gluten-containing solids, develop pale, bulky, offensive smelling stools, and become miserable, lethargic and generally fail to thrive.
Cow's milk is usually the first foreign protein (substance) encountered by infants.
Milk contains many protein fractions (allergens) that may cause allergic reactions. The two main components are whey and casein, and an individual may be allergic to either or both. The casein is the curd that forms when milk is left to go sour, and the whey is the watery fraction which is left after the curd is removed.
Clinically abnormal reactions to cow's milk protein (CMP) may be due to the interaction between one or more milk proteins and one or more immune mechanisms.
Reactions where the immune system is involved, which are mainly immediate IgE-mediated reactions (involving IgE-antibodies) are defined as cow's milk protein allergy (CMPA).
Reactions not involving the immune system are defined as cow's milk protein intolerance (CMP).
No milk-free diet should be undertaken without the supervision of a dietician, or consulting your paediatrician or GP or Health Visitor who will provide advice about at milk-free recipes and a list of alternative products to ensure a nutritionally adequate diet, in order to avoid a calcium, riboflavin or vitamin D deficiency.
